Also,
If you don't mind a little shine along with a soft hold and conditioning, give Brylcreem a shot. I started using it about 2 months ago and haven't looked back!

Thanks guys!

I ordered a Finest 21mm brush(not from the custom section).

I just got shipping info, and it said it was picked up today and estimated delivery is tomorrow before 10:30 AM!!!!!

Didn't think it could get here that fast from Germany, maybe he rushed it because it was shipped pretty late?

Thanks. I'm going to go ahead and place an order for the Omega. Don't hear too much said about these brushes on the forum but hopefully it'll be a good brush!

IF the Omega is truly silvertip badger, I would say it's worth the extra $17.00. $56 is an excellent price for a silvertip brush. I have'nt used either brush, but based on aesthetics and badger grade (if,if,if......) I would go with the Omega. I've been shaving with a silvertip for over 26 yrs and ...

Help me choose a new brush... please?

I'm trying to decide between a couple of brushes. The following shavemac: http://www.shavemac.com/index.php?lang=en&area=men&sel=1&cat=2&product=151&prod_id=1 Or this Omega: http://www.amazon.com/Omega-Peachy-Silver-Badger-Shaving/dp/B000GERNW8/sr=1-9/qid=1171991743/ref=sr_1_9/105-1835551-0148448?ie...

I personally prefer a smaller brush. Something between a 20-22mm knot is what I've found perfect for me. Not sure what my face size is, but I'm an averageish size guy(5'8", 145 lbs). I've tried brushes with bigger knots, but they just seem to get stuff everywhere, which seems unnecessary to me. Howe...

To the U.S.? My Shavemac only took a couple of days, but I've heard of them taking weeks if they get hung up in Customs. Yeah, I was wondering to the U.S. Thanks for the info. I was told it should ship out tomorrow so I hope it'll get here before the end of the week, hopefully no issues in customs...

Shavemac Shipping times...

Hey guys, Do you know about how long it usually takes for a shavemac brush you order to arrive at your home? I placed an order on Feb 12th and haven't received any info saying the order has shipped yet. I sent a few emails to info@shavemac.de to find out if it has shipped but have not heard anything...

Slant bar handle interchangable with Long Handle?

I am thinking about ordering a Merkur Slant and I currently use and like the Merkur Long Handle. I have tried the Merkur HD, but I prefer the longer handle. Can I use the slant bar with the handle from the Long Classic?

Thanks!

I personally thought it smelled pretty good on the tester card. However, when I sprayed my wrists and went home, SO and my cousin both said it is not something to be worn on a person, it smells good on the card and maybe as a candle or something along those lines, just not on a person. But again, fr...

Lol, I'm not sure what the 411 is, but I love Polo as well. I don't think there is anything wrong with using the department store type of colognes and/or aftershaves, just use whatever you like. Like you said, those products are not recognized as high end, but nothing is wrong with them... You said ...

The Tabac website www.tabac-original.de, doesn't really say. They explain the difference between the colonge, EDT, and AS. If it helps, Tabac pricing on perfume sites varies wildly, to say the least.
